Really, he didn't, because he's dead. True story: Champion Motorsport of Pompano Beach, Florida does an annual art-car collabo for the mega artsy confab, Art Basel Miami Beach. This year the shop teamed with "neo-pop" artist Romero Britto on a new Porsche 911 Cabriolet (991). Whimsy. So much whimsy.
Britto is a Miami-based painter, serigrapher (er, stencil-ist), and sculptor who made his bones (ie, ca-ching) doing corporate commissions, starting in 2003 with a limited-edition redesign of Absolut's vodka packaging, he went on to deliver corporate works for Movado, Disney, Enrico Coveri, Pepsi, the United Nations, and Royal Caribbean Cruises, among a number of causes and charities.
Hey, why starve for your art when you can pocket sweet commissions. It worked for Michelangelo, whose ghost is already on its way to Miami with a portable Chinese water torture kit.
